When you’re between meals and need something small and sweet to tide you over, be sure to have some Healthy Coconut Balls on-hand! Using six ingredients, Healthy Coconut Balls are just as easy to make as they are delicious.
Healthy Coconut Balls
I don’t know about you, but there’s something about having a healthy snack ready to go when a craving strikes. Even better is when that snack happens to be sweet.
Don’t get me wrong, raw veggies have their place, but when I can grab a few Coconut Balls instead, my day is made.
Only requiring six ingredients and no baking time, Healthy Coconut Balls won’t break the bank. Plus, you can freeze them, so portion control is easy!
They will keep in the fridge for up to 4 days, so freeze the rest for up to 30 days and thaw them out as needed.
Why Make Healthy Easy Coconut Balls?
To make Healthy Coconut Balls even easier to make, a few pieces of equipment will help. A food processor or blender to blend the ingredients together, parchment or wax paper to line a baking sheet, and a small cookie scoop will help create uniform balls.
I love a no-bake snack! Once the ingredients for these Coconut Balls are blended together, you’ll just scoop them into individual balls and freeze them for an hour on the prepared baking sheet.
After the hour is up, you’ll melt the chocolate and dip the balls, letting them sit at room temperature. So simple!
Ingredients for Coconut Balls
You probably have most of these ingredients already, but even if you don’t, it’s only six things:
Unsweetened Shredded Coconut – If you’ve never tried this with a recipe, it’s worth giving it a try!
Maple Syrup – I love using Maple Syrup in these healthy coconut balls.
Coconut Oil – One of the best types of oil out there is coconut oil. It’s so good in recipes (and so many other things!).
Pure Vanilla Extract – Vanilla extract always comes to the rescue.
Salt – You just need a little bit of salt.
Dark or Semisweet Chocolate – Chocolate is always something yummy to add!

These delicious and healthy coconut balls are a treat that everyone will love! Balls can be placed in the fridge for 4 days or freezer up to 30 days after being made for an easy snack. Using a fork vs a spoon to dip into chocolate helps the excess chocolate drip off without leaving the coconut balls in a pool of chocolate.
Stir together. If chocolate is not fully melted, heat again for 30 seconds.
Let set at room temperature.
Substitutions: 2 tablespoon water plus stevia (to taste) instead of maple syrup. Substitutions: Agave nectar or honey vs maple syrup
